[This album was released by German label Unrock in August 2022, under catalog number Unrock LP024. The text below is taken from the release page on Unrock's website]

"The legendary Lebanese trio of trumpeter Mazen Kerbaj (Karkhana, Johnny Kafta), guitarist Sharif Sehnaoui (Calamita, Karkhana, Johnny Kafta ) and bassist Raed Yassin (Praed, Praed Orchestra) celebrates its 20th anniversary with "The Binding Third" on Unrock.

They create acoustic improvised drones that range from insistent, chiming resonances with emergency alarm bells, to low, thrumming hums with growing intensity. Avoiding conventional technique, A Trio creates sounds using motorized devices to generate rattling, metallic vibrations, building a mechanistic backdrop out of which the instruments’ true voices occasionally arise.

This recording, taken at Sound Disobedience in Llubljana in 2019, reaches an exceptional electro-acoustic depth with strange sounds boiling down to a dark, heavy spiritual essence. Call it Acoustic-Industrial-Free-Jazz, or call it unrock."
